Todd: Hey, Melissa, we're talking about big events this week and what are some big events that you really enjoy?
Melissa: I like doing community events. I'm trying to get more involved in community events. There's a flea market this weekend.
Todd: A flea market?
Todd: Oh, yeah.
Melissa: At the beachside, and there's going to be lots of different eco-friendly stuff going on there, so it's kind of a mix of a reuse, resell your old stuff. Get new stuff for cheap.
Todd: OK, so for people who might not be familiar with the term flea market, can you explain?
Melissa: A flea market is basically a place where can take old clothes, old utensils, forks, spoons, knives, things like that from the kitchen, and other housewares either sell them or give them away at a cheap price, and it's fun because the customers ... a lot of them like to come and look at all the different stuff and even maybe haggle some prices, so try to get you to give a lower price, or if you're trying to get rid of a lot of stuff you might try to get the customer to take two things for the price of one. Things like that.
Todd: Yeah, right. Like when I was a kid I used to always go to flea marts, or flea markets with my grandparents, and what I thought was great is that you can haggle.
Todd: Right? Cause in the U.S. you can't haggle at a store.
Todd: So, this weekend, are you selling or buying?
Melissa: Well, I actually don't have that much stuff to sell cause I've recently moved so I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff I don't need, but I do plan bring some old pieces of clothing and things like that that I want to get rid of, and yeah, I'm really into flea markets and old thrift stores and stuff like that, so I just like to see what people have. If there's something cool, I might buy it.
